Linda Sarsour, co-organiser of the Women’s March, shares how growing up Palestinian Muslim American, feminist, and empowered moved her to become a globally recognised activist on behalf of marginalised communities across the country. On a chilly spring morning in Brooklyn, 19-year-old Linda Sarsour stared at her reflection, dressed in a hijab for the first time. She saw in the mirror the woman she was growing to be – a young Muslim American woman unapologetic in her faith and her activism, who would discover her innate sense of justice in the aftermath of 9/11. Now heralded for her award-winning leadership of the Women’s March on Washington, in this book Linda Sarsour offers a poignant story of community and family.
